When the January 6 protests took place at Capitol Hill, Ryan Samsel was there leading the charge against the police. The bike racks were shoved over and he stormed the building. Samsel is also alleged to have injured a female officer during the melee.
Since being arrested, Samsel has been treated very horribly. His hands were zip tied and he was given a brutal beating by the officers on duty. This is how justice is meted out in Biden’s America now. This man was beaten so badly, he lost an eye. How is this allowable?
Biden’s America claims that police brutality is an absolute no/no but it seems to be pretty negotiable from where we are sitting. If Biden wants your backside handed to you, that is simply what is going to happen and there is no two ways about it. This story has yet to make any headlines but we cannot pretend to be surprised by this. Fortunately, Politico has more about the latest developments:
“For weeks, Capitol riot defendants being held in Washington have complained that they are locked in their cells with virtually no human contact for 23 hours a day. But a startling, graphic account offered publicly in court on Tuesday by one such inmate, Ronald Sandlin, went further: alleging that guards have subjected those charged in the Jan. 6 events to violence, threats and verbal harassment.
“Myself and others involved in the Jan. 6 incident are scared for their lives, not from each other but from correctional officers,” Sandlin said during a bail hearing conducted by video before U.S. District Court Judge Dabney Friedrich. “I don’t understand how this is remotely acceptable,” he added, saying he was being subjected to “mental torture.”
In an unusual direct plea to the judge, Sandlin said another Capitol riot defendant, Ryan Samsel, “was severely beaten by correctional officers, [is now] blind in one eye, has a skull fracture and detached retina.”
Sandlin also described racial tension between minority guards and the largely white defendants, some of whom have been publicly accused of membership in or association with white supremacist groups,” the report states.
This paints a fairly terrifying picture of where we are as a country right now. If this had happened in a manner that was offensive to Democrats, we would have already heard about it several times over. Samsel does not fit the profile of someone who they should care about so here we are.
It’s sad to watch this hypocrisy unfold over and over again. Samsel deserves the same justice that any American would receive in such an instance. The same people who want to see leniency for other criminals are now rejoicing because this man’s eye was destroyed during a scuffle with these cowardly officers.
How could they possibly feel good about themselves? It takes some real tough guys to restrain someone with zip ties before kicking the crap out of them. We’re laying on the sarcasm pretty thick here but our readers know exactly where we are coming from all of this.
We are fed up. Biden should have the same level of outrage over things like this but let’s face the facts here. He’s not really tuned into what is going on. Trump’s penchant for cable television news programs was mocked early and often but at least he wasn’t caught flat-footed on a regular basis like Biden. It would not surprise us in the slightest to learn that Biden has no clue about this horrific story.

This is how his Department of Justice is going to behave, unless he does something to put them under control. This is not something that we are placing any sort of bet on. He would have to take an interest in these types of situations first. White supremacist police officers are the absolute worst, unless they are willing to do Joe Biden’s dirty work for him. The tune changes quickly then.
